Photos, Does 06 Cambiocorsa and F355 share the same color ?

Pardon the quality of these photos, taken by my phone.

Question, I've been curious about this for a while, it doesn't make sense to use the Ferrari signature color on Maserati, even though they were built side by side... is Ferrari using the same color swatches on the Maserati (it was only a decade arrangement to bring back the Maserati, and, to my knowledge, Maserati is moving to Alfa's factory in 2012/2013, Did Ferrari share absolutely everything ?

Bonus question, Was the Retractable Hard Top California suppose to be a Maserati Gran Turismo Spider ?

those cars don't look to be the same color...the Maser looks darker.

and yes, I've heard from multiple sources that the Cali was originally going to be a Maser but the production/tooling costs of the folding roof were too high, so it became a Ferrari (plus, it filled a gap in the Ferrari product life cycle).

Ferrari took the Cali boosted the hp and tagged it with a badge. The Maser and Cali have the same frame and other parts.

The 599 has a lot of Maser parts too.

David- The closest one of the pro shops has found is PPG HFM4.

All the PPG paint charts I have seen for Maserati are different from Ferrari charts, but do have some of the same colors. You can find one for 2005 Maseratis here:

Auto Color Library - The World's Largest Online Color-Chip Library

I have been trying to save the Maserati code charts, but the site is malfunctioning right now.

Here is a chart of older Maserati PPG codes:

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
